Why does it use so much battery? Widgets not working. When this app works, it is great - 5 stars. But with the latest version I am using (on a Samsung Note 3): 1. It is chewing up battery life. 2. The widgets are not working - they do not display anything, just grey. I was still happy using it for the daily wallpaper update which works fine, but the battery usage was a killer, so I have removed it at least until that gets sorted out.

Battery usage This app used to work perfectly. It now drain 20-40% of your battery in a day all by it self. This needs to be fixed ASAP.

Good but new version has issues APOD has excellent images but the new version of this app has some issues. It no longer reliably updates the background wallpaper automatically and the text information takes up too much screen space. The older layout was more effective. It has also recently started to drain battery for no readily apparent reason. Stopped using it. :-(
